, by contrast, says the a.p. didn't bother checking either one of barack obama's books. what is behind this double standard? my next guest is somebody who knows a great deal about the media and has even spent time with governor sarah palin on the campaign trail. let's take a look. >> when i was asked to come out here to all of you and introduce the governor today, i was, of course, incredibly honored. but let's be honest. i was really excited just to be able to talk for five minutes without getting interrupted. and let me tell you this -- when it gets hot in the kitchen, the governor may be from alaska, but she can take the heat. sean: we're now happy to be joined by the author of "the g free diet, a gluten free survival guide." she is the emmy award-winning host of abc's "the view," the one and only lids bet hasselbeck. i love the show. i watch it all the time. >> not everybody does. sean: at least it's a rosie-free zone. >> sean, you're bad, but indeed, it is. sean: you said you watched the interview last night with sarah palin. >> i did. sean: i was with you when you gave
looks like obama, sam complexion, same attitude. it was fun. -- same complexion, same attitude. it was fun. i am sorry that richard and not live long enough to see this. we knew it would happen. tavis: first question, that sketch was part of a show on nbc that richard on a state with four episodes. after the fourth episode, he walked. >> we had a special for five. tavis: why was he not happy about that? >> it was a lot of pssure on and he was like him then, cornered. the creativity part of it was fun, but the pressure of being funny and being brilliant, that is a lot of pressure. tavis: he felt trapped? >> i am glad that you know, it was richard, it was not nbc. the suits, they love this. they are like vampires before richard came around. now they could get up and suck the blood. they made all the decisions, you can say this and that. they had a life. they could reap their power. there were loving every bit of it. if it was up to the executive producers and the people of nbc, richard wod be on the air right now. tavis: how first. it was richard being told how to channel his cre

. >> are we beginning to see the outlines though of an obama strategy? >> we are and trying to piece it together it's hard to come up with sort of specific numbers, but what we are seeing is that this is more likely to be a process, wolf, than the president coming out and saying we're going to do "x" number of troops, but what he's going to do is set benchmarks or targets for afghanistan and pakistan to meet. in other words, in afghanistan, you've got to -- you've got to be more independent, set up your troops, get rid of corruption. pakistan, start targeting al qaeda, start targeting militants. the big question, wolf, we don't know if they don't meet those benchmarks what do we do then? what's our stick, you know, because we're there for us, we're not there for them. >> it also looks like the administration is beginning to rethink the entire strategy in dealing with the recently re-elected hamid karzai? >> yeah. i spoke with one administration source who said to me let's just call it a recalibration because obviously this is an administration that's been very disappointed in karzai,

on this, and this is the political opening and this is where obama is so good, where he can get out and explain what the playing field is all about. but down the stretch here, do you think there is any way when we get into conference committee, like tom harkin is going to be able to strengthen the public option? nancy pelosi is going to be in there. staunch supporters in this? it might turn out to be a heck of a lot better. if i'm a republican, i'm nervous about this thing. what do you think? >> i think you're right. i think harkin and our friends there, sherod brown. harry reid deserves a medal of honor for fighting for americans right now and we've got momentum and don't let anybody tell you otherwise. people don't want their premiums raised, their homes foreclosed, credit card rates going up. people are on the side of jimmy city article and george bailey. we're right about the morality. democrats are in a fighting mood in any day since the george bush administration. the people are with us. >> one thing perfectly clear tonight. i have been tough on geithner and we'll talk more ab

obama beyond "we lead upt someh. >> well, he is really careful with his language. he really, as a lawyer, but said it in a very lawyerly way, and he tends to be choosing very precise words. >> i am not necessarily saying that -- both obama and bush had very good speech writers. i have watched bush just stumbling around before he got to the speech. i once was in germany and he was not doing well. when he got the speech, it was very good because he read it well and he was comfortable. when he had that teleprompter, he had a degree of comfort that he would not have had otherwise. and obama does both. he always has a teleprompter, and he seems quite comfortable without it. at the press conferences there is a big teleprompter that is close to a shield. he reads the first few remarks even as they sound quite informal of that, but then he is into questions and he is on his own and he does just as well. >> right. >> so he is naturally articulate. i wonder, though, whether he will leave us with any great phrases that will go down in history. i do not think he has yet. >> right, and you do not rea

when he heard obama speak, i thought that was the dumbest thing i had ever heard on television. then he said if you don't cry when you hear barack obama speak you are not an american. i said no, that's dumber. then when he said a few days ago is it a crime to call al qaeda? well, if you are a major in the united states army it might be. bill: might be. >> but now he is enthralled with race. and i'm thinking this is a conservative woman from alaska. this isn't little kim or al sharpton. why would it surprise you that her followers are white? and while we're on the subject, chris, while we're on the subject, how many black people do you think are watching your show? for that matter, how many people do you think are watching your show? bill: all right. now, jon stewart takes a shot at you. you were on the factor, you know, a few days ago and you said that down syndrome babies wouldn't really be welcomed in many liberal pre60's -- precincts. >> when she was put on the ticket a disease broke out in. palin derangement syndrome. she has five kids. liberals don't have five kids. one of them has

for roland burris. you know he succeeded barack obama for the illinois seat. he was appointed by then governor rod blagojevich who has been indicted. and what we know now is that roland burris is commenting on what is considered a public letter of qualified admonition. that means the senate ethics committee has reviewed all of his conduct and they are giving him a reprimand. this is one of the milder forms of reprimand. this is not the type that would rise to the level of being expelled from the senate but this is significant. burris says this. i am pleased that the numerous investigations this matter has finally come to a close. i thank the members of the senate ethics committee for their fair and thorough review of this matter and i look forward to continuing the important work ahead on behalf of the people of illinois. now, part of what happens here is that this goes back to when he gave testimony before the illinois state senate. now, you remember there were a lot of questions about how about roland burris get the appointment by the governor who was clouded then. now, reme

obama proposing these programs that will bankrupt the country and destroy our healthcare system, i can't stay up there in alaska and watch this happening in the lower 48 states. and i can't leave alaska to go into the lower 48 and still do my duty as governor, and that's why i'm resigning. greta: but she didn't do it. but what can she do now? how? >> you have a huge grass-roots momentum against the kinds of policies that obama is recommending, and there is no leader. and what she can do is become the leader. she can be the person who on the ground is leading the attack against his health care program, against cap and trade, against amnesty for illegals. she can be the point person on that, because there's nobody else in the party who's prepared to do that. romney can't. he proposed the same darn thing in massachusetts. but sarah palin can. >> what does it -- it seems to me -- and maybe you disagree with this -- but that she has people absolutely love her and people who actually hate her. is that a plus as a candidate? and historically, have any other sort of possible presidential candi
sides of the aisle. the obama agenda, there's a lot of other evidence it could be on the ropes. let's bring in john harwood. we were struck by the story in the "washington post" where they outlined what happened yesterday with geithner, but also that barney frank had to come out and tell everybody that financial reform wasn't going to happen soon. how much is obama's economic agenda truly on the ropes here? >> well, look, obama's facing significant challenges right now because he's going to have to wait for results in a lot of areas. in particular, on his economic policy. his team believes that they have done with the stimulus package this year, something that along with what the fed's doing is in fact pulling the economy into recovery, but with unemployment being a lagging indicator, you're not going to be able to point to a falling employment indicator. it's not about tim geithner. the management he's exercised at treasury has been vindicated, but when you have members feel the heat, democrats running for re-election and republicans wanting to take shots, they're going the take sh

analogy with mccain and obama on halloween. we're at the 40 yard line, close to the goal line, right? a field goal isn't good enough. we need real comprehensive health care. and that's why we are starting the game now. i believe once we get to allow that debate to start, which is saturday night at 8:00 p.m., the vote is forecast, i see no reason why someone is suddenly going to decide not to at least allow the debate to continue on saturday night. then we start moving down the field to that goal line. and in the end, rachel, if a player gets injured on the field, they will have health care. so i am very positive about moving forward. i think everyone in the senate is going to want to see some changes to the bill. i don't think that should surprise you. we represent different states. i for one am happy that there has been significant cost reform in this bill, working toward making health care more affordable for the people of this country. it offers stability, despite some of the things you were saying at the beginning. think about this. finally people in america, if your kid gets sic
. if the obama administration's goal is to control health care costs and unnecessary health care spending and individuals, families and women who face these choices may want zero percent of anything going wrong and may want to have or, you know, screenings in their 40s as they have been doing, but it is an issue for the administration that wants to look at, are they getting the most out of health care spending to look at different guidelines and different recommendations. so, this is something that the obama administration has to sort of reconcile. the fact that they immediately ran the other way when they charged these folks to come up with this panel discussion. they're going to be boards on these health care bills that examine, you know, the health care spending and whether this is the best approach ultimately towards cutting costs. >> a lot of ambivaliance already because in the various provisions that would create institutions to do what is known as comparative effectiveness research, generally the approach has been to really limit the extent to which that research can be used to dri
